I don’t know if you’ve been feeling it as much as I have, but this Mercury retro period has been making life quite frustrating for me (and a number of my friends) for the last few weeks even before it went retrograde on Monday 17 Feb!  It’s mainly been computer problems for me (sigh!) and clients re-arranging appointments, while friends went to catch what turned out to be a non-existent flight (!) then luckily were put onto the next flight – and upgraded too, so it’s not all bad!!!  The beauty of understanding the Astrology of all this is that it stops you frying … you see the cosmic joke, and often end up giggling like a loony! One of my favourite Mercury retro stories (I’ve got a few J ) was from a friend who had some computer issues, rang the techy guy who said “Well it’s Mercury retro now so there’s no point me trying to fix it yet – I’ll come over next week when it’s gone direct again”.  Good to see Astro-Enlightenment is spreading!!!

The New Moon falls in Pisces in the very early hours of Mon 24 Feb 2020 AEST (the previous day in Europe and the Americas).

In its positive manifestation, this New Moon signifies a renewed focus on spirituality and the desire to transcend our 3D reality. Pisces has a strong sense of divine homesickness, a longing to return to source and merge into oneness.  This New Moon is a great time to begin a new cycle of meditation and spiritual practices!   It’s also a wonderful time to begin a new cycle of creative pursuits, such as art, photography or music, essentially anything creative that takes you into that right-brain space of timelessness, a highly Neptunian experience!

When manifesting negatively however, Pisces (through its ruler Neptune) can bring illusion and deception, making us more gullible than usual, more prone to being deceived (and deceiving ourselves too!).  Be careful of falling under some kind of spell under the influence of this New Moon!!!  The Piscean urge to transcend reality can express negatively as escapism, any kind of escapism – which in its more extreme form can easily develop into addictive patterns of behaviour.

The New Moon in Pisces may also usher in a new cycle of compassion and the desire to help others. Just be careful that this doesn’t become an urge to rescue people, as you’ll disempower them in the process.  Pisces has a tendency towards self-sacrifice in the service of others, even to the point of martyrdom, so make sure you look after yourself first, otherwise you’ll be in no position to take care of others.  There’s a fine line between helping others and rescuing them, overstepping boundaries which essentially need to be respected and strengthened.  One of the best ways to empower people is to give them the space to make their own decisions, providing the invitation for them to step into that place of self-responsibility and empowerment.

Wherever you have 4 degrees of Pisces in your chart is the area of your life that will be affected by this New Moon – for example, if it falls in your 10th house, this signifies the beginning of a new cycle in your career or professional life.

If your birthday falls close to this date (within a day either side), this is the beginning of an important new cycle for you, especially with regard to your sense of identity and your purpose in life.

The New Moon is exact at 1.31am Queensland time (AEST).  Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon.
